Hi Ken, great stuff.. Any chance you could post your code so I can try it out? Cheers, Ramon

Do you have any specifics on the issue? What LCD, wiring etc?
Maybe we can figure this out.

Hi Sweetlilmre,

If you have the time can you please explain to me how I can get this bitbanger driver to work with the Dot Matrices from Sure Electronics? or can you update your example of the Led Matrices with this driver?



In Topic: DHT11 Temperature Sensor

Would you consider using an 8-bit microcontroller (such as ATtiny or ATmega) as a 'bridge' between Netduino and the sensor?

Yes that would be a fine solution, the only problem is don't it need to be a Arduino then? And in all cases I need to write C++ or C witch is a problem for me as I don't know how :) It would be even better if I could combine it with a 433Mhz wireless transmitter and receiver to wireless transmit the temperature.

Damn! Thanks for the response guys! I'm not going to be able to write a native driver, so unless someone has too much free time I'm going to give up on this sensor. Anyone wants to buy a DHT11 sensor :)

In Topic: Netduino Plus home automation

13 October 2010 - 01:22 PM

Well, my first Netduino project is underway. I've decided to go for some home automation. Photos, code, etc. will follow once I've got something worthwhile to show. I decided to break this down into manageable stages as a buggy project could be a lot of hassle.

1. Finish one part properly before starting on another. (I get distracted easily.)

2. Make sure I'm never in the dark or locked out of the house becuase of a bug in my C# or something being half-finished. (Would get too much grief from the wife too.)

3. Make sure it's easily removed and reverted back to "normal" operation in case I ever want to move house.

1. Get garage lighting and working on a low voltage relay driven circuit. (DONE. The "brains" are some 4011 NAND gates. This board can get slotted back in for basic functionality whilst the Netduino board is being worked on.)

2. Create a Netduino Plus based board to control the same lights, operate the garage door and tell me whether the door is open or closed. (Underway. Success will be if I can check if I left the lights on or the door open from my phone over WiFi.)

3. Add remote operation for the main house doors (from phone/PC), making very sure I won't end up locked out due to buggy code or a power failure.

4. Add an access control mechanism. Options are RFID using the ID-20 reader (playing with this) or a fingerprint reader (also playing with this, but would need a PC to be involved). Will add more details on this in due course.

5. Add lighting control for the rest of the house. (Investigating options like X10 and Z-Wave but there seems to be no good off-the shelf solution. Will add more details on this.)

Not the most original of projects, but it's a start. Comments, suggestion and questions welcome.

Very cool I like to create something like this too! Will be watching your topic closely!
